This was a up and coming community that diminished and now Kansas city is revitalizing it. Its colorful and fun with plenty of things to do. You can park and walk and there's no limit to the neat things that you'll find on this short walk. Really awesome.

Don't go here during the day! We wouldn't get out of the car! We heard more things are going on during the evening. We thought it sounded pretty good, but left very disappointed.

The only bad thing I have to say about this festival was that they didnt serve Ribs this year. Other than that we were thrilled to listen to Bobby Lyle, Pieces of a Dream, Maysa, and Con Funk Shun.

Great museum....full of history... Recommended to any jazz buff. Several displays of Charlie Parker, Lou Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and many more. Attached to the Blue Room. Great Jazz music on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and maybe Sunday.

I live locally in kansas city, and know that there are certain places you dont want to find yourself at night, 18th and vine is one of those places. While, downtown kansas city (main street/broadway) are safe, I would be weary to venture too far away from those areas.

Went to the Blue Room. Enjoyed Big Band sound. Drinks were expensive and no refills unless you paid full price again for sodas. No food offered so no appetizers or anything to help pass the time. Music is great though but needs to offer more as far as food and drink. Drinking one $3 coke for 4 hours just was... More

Too bad the City of Kansas City, MO, has not capitalized on cultural tourism, because this is a diamond in the rough and should be used in advertisements for Missouri.
